    So....para 3 is as small as i can go

    I really had the hots for a Para 3 in K390 .. til I realized I couldn't get one into the country. My ardour cooled pretty quick after that.

    Pasty? Or are you thinking of something that can last months and months? If that, is a can of Heinz All Day Breakfast a possibility.

    New Alox... Farmer X.

    Ah, that's right. Scibeer was the guy who made mine. And, was it the Pioneer X I was thinking of? Ift they could figure out a saw for the Compact, I'd snap it up ... if they could keep it compact :)

    New Alox... Farmer X.

    I must have dreamed. I thought that the Farmer with scissors had been out for yonks. I had a modded grey alox farmer at one time, but it was too heavy and I didn't carry it, so sold it. But I could have sworn Victorinox, almost immediately after that, released a scissory farmer. It's why I...

    Cheap rum ... it has remained a staple. Nice in hot apple juice in the cold weather. Scotch if I feel I am living it up. Sake is nice in winter .. cheap too

    Didn't say it wasn't that :) but the knife chatter isn't anything like as tuned up as BB in its heyday, or places like BF, AAPK etc ... not much technical talk about making or materials, not much historical discussion, few builds or WIPs

    Blade Forums, BCUSA ... Messer Forum, there's Neoczen and sites in South Africa and Australia. BCUSA is more or less a gun and knife site with some outdoorsy philosophy and tips. There's a few favoured makers though, so be aware of that, and the knife knowledge, which is in some members...
